An American Conversation

A Graduate Student-Created Project
During the Spring 2009 semester, a team of museum education students and faculty at UT produced An American Conversation, a piece that explores the cross-cultural, interrelated narratives found in the dynamic and international America/Americas galleries of the Blanton Museum of Art. The presentation examines the shared history and issues of the Americas as expressed through the visual arts of the United States, Central America, and South America represented in the Blanton collection. The presentation introduces viewers to innovative ways of thinking about the multiple narratives of the artworks while building on the educational possibilities of the America/Americas galleries.
